Tony Miles - It's Only Me: England's First Chess Grandmaster by Mike Fox
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A fascinating and entertaining collection of games articles, annotations and reviews by Britain's first Grandmaster. It is the book that Tony Miles should have written had he not died so prematurely in 2001. The compilation includes: all his most famous wins, some of his losses, previously hitherto unpublished games from Tony's earlier years, and - in addition to the famous game against Karpov with the St George's opening 1 e4 a6 - a much less well known win over the then world champion from a television tournament. Nearly all of the games have annotations by Tony - in his own inimitable style. As well as being one of England's greatest players, Tony was, as this book demonstrates, one of the funniest writers on the game.
